Re: [IP] Glucagon

In a message dated 99-02-06 23:53:47 EST, you write:

<< Glucagon is best used when the patient is unresponsive and/or has no gag 
 reflex. For a full grown adult, give them the entire injection in a nice 
 place like the butt.
Make sure the person you are giving this to is turned on their side, just in
case vomiting does occur. This action lessens the chance of aspiration.
Children and very peite females may only need one half of the full dose.  Once
prepared, inject within 15 minutes. Do not save any leftover glucagon as it
will deteriorate.
